Book Description Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Edition. Ruskin Bond once famously remarked that while he does not believe in ghosts, he sees them all the time—in the woods, in a bar, in a crowd outside a cinema. Not surprising, then, that in his stories, ghosts, jinns, witches—and the occasional monster—are as real as the people he writes about. He makes the supernatural appear entirely natural, and therefore harder to ignore. This collection brings together all of Ruskin Bond's tales of the paranormal written over five decades. It opens with perhaps his best-known story, the unforgettable `A Face in the Dark', set in a pine forest outside Simla, and ends with the shockingly macabre `Night of the Millennium', where the scene of the action is an abandoned cemetery. In between are tales featuring monkeys and a pack of dogs come back from the dead, an elderly lady who is a witch after dark, a schoolboy riding his bicycle up and down the country road where he was killed, and Kipling's ghost in London's Victoria and Albert Museum. Comprising twenty-eight classic stories that range from the chilling to the whimsical (for `the supernatural has its funny side too'), A Face in the Dark and Other Hauntings is the perfect collection to have by your bedside when the moon is up. Printed Pages: 144. Size: 13 Cms x 20 Cms. Bookseller Inventory # 024568

Set in Shahjahanpur during the revolt of 1857, A Flight of Pigeons is Ruskin Bond?s classic novella about the twists of fate, history and the human heart.

From here they eventually hope to escape to their relatives in Bareilly. But their plans go awry when Javed Khan, a fiery Pathan opposed to the British, abducts Ruth and her mother and takes them to his haveli. To their surprise, it is not hate that impels him in this time of war, but an almost crippling passion for Ruth.
